Going Green, Saving Green: A Fleet Manager's Guide to Alternative Fuels Best Practices

By WEX

The media often positions alternative fuel types as a consumer movement, but the truth is, commercial and government fleets are actually much better poised to use alternative fuels. This is the case for one main reason: Unlike most individual consumers, a fleet’s fueling choices are premeditated. Vehicles typically refuel at specific depots or at known stations along well-defined routes. There’s less process uncertainty, making it easier for them to integrate alternative fuels across their fleets in a consistent, systematic way.

But while the case for alternative fuels is compelling, knowing how to implement them in your fleet isn’t always obvious. How do you roll out green initiatives without raising operating costs and exposing your fleet to market fads?

In this paper, we provide fleets with best practices for the cost-effective implementation of alternative fuels in a commercial or government fleet. The following critical topics will help with decision making and planning:

  • Know the station coverage in your area
  • Compare historical fuel costs
  • Calculate the total cost of vehicle ownership
  • Identify and use tax credits
  • Approach fuel conservation comprehensively
